    The Confession of Sin and Supplication for Grace Minister and People

    We praise You, O God, the Father Almighty. We praise You, O God, You who are

    the adored, true, and only Son. We praise You, O God, the Holy Spirit, our Com-

    forter, the Lord and Giver of Life. We praise You, O God, Father, Son, and Holy

    Spirit, one God. Blessed be Your glorious Name forever and ever. We acknowledge

    and confess before You that we have sinned against You in thought, word, and

    deed, that we have not loved You with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and

    we have not loved our neighbor as ourselves. We beg You, O God, to forgive what

    we have been, to help us to amend what we are, and of Your mercy to direct what

    we shall be, so that hereafter we may walk in the way of Your commandments, and

    do that which is pleasing in Your sight, through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

    The Scriptural Assurance of Pardon Hebrews 9:13, 14 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the un-

    clean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of

    Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge

    your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
